FOR THE BEAUTY OF THE EARTH

Flowers of earth and buds of heaven




Grateful today for the beauty of God's creation to grace my home and give loveliness to my nest...

Grateful today for my church where I can go and sing a hymn of grateful praise that God is alive and well and in control of all things good and bad, small and large, weak and strong...

Have a lovely Sunday. What are you grateful for today???
God's best blessings...



For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of light,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth, and friends above,
Pleasures pure and undefiled,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

For each perfect gift of thine,
To our race so freely given,
Graces human and divine,
Flowers of earth and buds of heaven
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

For thy Church which evermore
Lifteth holy hands above,
Offering up on every shore
Her pure sacrifice of love,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

Bless you sweet Julie, I am in awe of you & your posts....you have inner strength that I find myself looking to you for on so many occasions...it must be a Marine Mom "thang" ~ Cindy inspires me too & keeps me laughing, I just love her so! Without you two very special ladies & that Theresa I'd be a basket case ~ it's nice to have others that understand to "share" with...I only hope that one day we can all meet up & laugh :) Blessing & prayers!

Love this post, Julie. There is so much to be thankful for. Today we said Thanks because our girls received their First Communion, it was a great day, very emotional, singing and praising to our Lord, asking for His blessings upon our Girls and all the Children.

Blessings...

P.d. Erased the previous one because it was repeated. ;-)
